Fastrac Soft Bait is a highly effective soft bait rodenticide that helps control rats, mice, and meadow voles. Contains bromethalin as its active ingredient which is known for targeting the central nervous system of rodents. Ideal for quick knockdown of rodent populations. It has an oil-based formula that features a balance of saturated and unsaturated fats that do not freeze even during cold weather. It is proven to be cost-effective since it requires less bait compared to anticoagulants. Perfect for use both indoors and outdoors plus, it is very easy and convenient to use. Available in a 4-pound pail with approximately 227 individual 8-gram sachets.
This product is extremely toxic to mammals and birds. Dogs and other predatory and scavenging mammals and birds might be poisoned if they feed upon animals that have eaten this bait. Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash water or rinsate.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
READ THIS LABEL: Read this entire label and follow all use directions and use precautions. Use only for the sites, pests, and application methods described on this label.
IMPORTANT: Do not expose children, pets, or nontarget animals to rodenticides. To help prevent exposure:
Store unused product out of reach of children and pets.
Apply bait in locations out of reach of children, pets, domestic animals and nontarget wildlife, or in tamper-resistant bait stations. These stations must be resistant to destruction by dogs and by children under six years of age, and must be used in a manner that prevents such children from reaching into bait compartments and obtaining bait. If bait can be shaken from bait stations when they are lifted, units must be secured or otherwise immobilized. Stronger bait stations are needed in areas open to hoofed livestock, raccoons, bears or other potentially destructive animals, or in areas prone to vandalism.
Dispose of product container and unused, spoiled or unconsumed bait as specified on this label.
Bait stations are mandatory for outdoor, above-ground use. Tamper-resistant bait stations must be used wherever children, pets, non-target mammals or birds may have access to the bait placement location.
USE RESTRICTIONS: This product may only be used to control the following rodent pests in and around man-made structures: House mouse (Mus musculus), Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus), Roof rat (Rattus rattus), Cotton rat* (Sigmodon hispidus), Eastern harvest mouse* (Reithrodontomys humuli), Golden mouse* (Ochrotomys nuttalli), Polynesian rat* (Rattus exulans), Meadow vole* (Microtus pennsylvanicus), White-throated woodrat* (Neotoma albigula), Southern plains woodrat* (Neotoma micropus), and Mexican woodrat* (Neotoma mexicana). This product must be used in and within 100 feet of man-made structures constructed in a manner so as to be vulnerable to commensal rodent invasions and/or to harboring or attracting rodent infestations. Examples of such structures include homes and other permanent or temporary residences, food processing facilities, industrial and commercial buildings, trash receptacles, agricultural and public buildings, transport vehicles (ships, trains, aircraft), docks and port or terminal buildings and related structures around and associated with these sites. Fence and perimeter baiting, beyond 100 feet from a structure, as defined above, is prohibited. This product must not be applied directly to food or feed crops.
Burrow baiting with FASTRAC Soft Bait is prohibited.
Do not place bait near or inside ventilation duct openings. Do not contaminate water, food, feedstuffs, food or feed handling equipment, or milk or meat handling equipment. Do not apply directly to food or feed crops. Do not broadcast bait.
Do not sell this product in individual containers holding less than 4 pounds of bait.
SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS: Determine areas where rats, mice, or meadow voles* will most likely find and consume bait. Generally, these are along walls, by gnawed openings, in corners and concealed places, between floors or walls, or in locations where rats, mice, or meadow voles*, or their signs have been observed. Remove as much alternative food as possible.
APPLICATION DIRECTIONS: The active ingredient in this product is different from anticoagulant rodenticides. Individual rats and mice typically feed less or cease feeding altogether after consuming a toxic dose.
Bait may be removed from the sachet and placed in a feeding device that secures the unwrapped bait in a bait station.
Discard empty wrapper in the trash
Rats: Place 4 to 24 sachets per placement (usually at intervals of 15- to 30- feet) in infested areas. Adjust the amount of bait applied to the level of rat feeding expected at each bait placement.
Mice and Meadow Voles*: Apply 1 to 2 sachets per placement. Space placements at intervals of 8- to 12- feet in infested areas. Larger placements, up to 4 sachets, may be needed at points of extremely high mouse or meadow vole* activity.
Baiting Strategy: Highest bait consumption is expected to occur on the first day or two after treatment begins. After several days, inspect the placement and replenish bait at sites where there is evidence of heavy feeding or where there is continued evidence of rodent activity.
Normally, the volume of bait consumed will be significantly less with bromethalin baits than with anticoagulant baits. Although one night’s feeding will usually provide a lethal dose for mice and rats, maintain bait for at least one week to provide all individuals a chance to feed on the bait. Continue baiting until all signs of feeding have ceased.
FOLLOW-UP: Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately. Wearing waterproof gloves, collect and dispose of all dead, exposed animals and leftover bait. To discourage reinfestation, limit sources of rodent food, water, and harborage as much as possible. If reinfestation does occur, repeat treatment. Where a continuous source of infestation is present, establish permanent bait stations and replenish them as needed.
I have tried nearly every bait here on the Montana mouse problems. I live in the woods and the mice population will explode and they will invade the house, garage, utility room, and cars in the fall and spring.
I have tried multiple baits here and came upon Fastrac as the only successful bait. I've listed the other baits trialed and none has anywhere near the palatability of the Fastrac purple bait. The next closest is First Strike and it is a very distant second place with about 10% the uptake of Fastrac. Had hopes for Final soft bait, but almost no update after 3 months so it was a bust for Final.
Also do some research on the anti-coag baits before you buy. Some will require multiple feeds to kill mice and this will be a slow process even if the mice will eat the anti-coag bait. The second generation anti-coags are supposed to be one feed to kill but I have had minimal luck with them (First Strike and Final). Fastrac seems to be very fast at killing mice.
I have tried:
Final Soft bait - minimal nibbles (1 station of out 20)
Contrac Blox - no nibbles, multi feed to kill.
Ditrac Blox - no nibbles, multi feed to kill.
JT Eaton Bait Block Rodenticide - no nibbles, takes multiple feeds to kill
First Strike Soft Bait Rodenticide - does get some nibbles
Fastrac - reliably consumed and one feed kill. Overwhelmingly preferred here by the mice in MT.
